San Jose Music Festival’s 10th Anniversary

Support local artists and enjoy some music in downtown San Jose

Every year, local musicians come out and rock the streets of downtown San Jose for one long night of music. This year, expect an even bigger party than usual as it’s the 10th anniversary of this event, which is also the worldwide celebration of the summer solstice. The festival will take place on June 23rd with the main stage set up at the plaza in front of city hall in San Jose’s historic district. Performances will take place on various street corners throughout downtown, beginning at 6pm and going until 2am. There will be over 100 different performers, and an expected turnout of 25,000, making it the biggest musical event in Baja California Sur.

This year’s headliner is Panoptica Orchestra, a prominent player in Mexico’s electronic music scene. Other performers include Andy, Color Hermano, Natty & the Trimmers, La Poronga Ska, Walksider, and many more.

Anyone can register to perform in the music festival if they meet the technical requirements such as professional audio equipment, an audio engineer on hand, professional lighting equipment, and access to power (via generator or from an outlet somewhere near the stage). Sponsors include Hyatt Place, Squid Roe, Tecate, and many others.
